This can not be stressed enough: Uke are going to love this edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. For show 58, Ken has assembled a great set of tunes that feature an instrument beloved by George Harrison, the ukelele. But there’s more to savor tonight, assuming you’re tuned tonight to Pure Pop Radio at 9 pm ET.
Ken kicks off the show with six Beatles and solo Beatles songs; John Lennon’s “I’m Losing You” is up first, followed by, among other numbers, the Fabs’ “No Reply” and a tribute to our favorite group from singer-songwriter Marc Platt (“I Dreamed I Saw the Beatles”).
Segment two features commentary from the Cute Beatle, Paul McCartney, and two songs from the New album: the rollicking “Queenie Eye” and “Hell to Pay.” The Fabs also appear with “Carol.”
And then, it’s time to break out the ukes! George Harrison starts things off with his wonderful rendition of “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.” Paul and Linda McCartney sing “Ram On” and the Cars’ Greg Hawkes contributes a version of the Beatles’ “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.” It’s a groovy uke-a-rifficset everyone will enjoy.
Tune in to Pure Pop Radio tonight at 9 pm ET for another great edition of Ken Michaels’ Every Little Thing. And stay tuned after the show for more of the greatest melodic pop music in the universe! See you on the radio!
